Wow, did September even happen? It absolutely flew by! I have had an absolutely stonking reading month, even if I feel like I’ve hardly done anything else, so let’s see how the numbers stack up this time (spoiler alert, I’m super pleased!)
Today I’m breaking my hiatus to take part in the blog tour for this fabulous middle grade fantasy read from James Nicol! I have not only a review, but also a guest post from James for you…
August is the first month this year that’s actually felt like a long one! The summer’s stretched out beautifully this month, I’ve got lots of reading done, and the house stress has finally lightened up a bit.
That being said, as you can see from the title, I will be taking another month’s hiatus in September – the start of the new school year is always a real adjustment for our family as we have to readapt to juggling work and home life, plus I have a writing deadline at the end of the month, so I think this year it makes sense to put one of my spinning plates down in advance! I’ve got a couple of blog tours booked in, and I may throw up the odd post if I get a moment, but otherwise I’ll be pretty quiet on the blog until the start of October (when Hallowreadathon returns!).
Okay, with that out of the way, shall we see how my reading’s stacked up this month?
A wonderfully exciting, mysterious magical read!
An exciting science-fantasy adventure that tackles some serious issues while still being incredibly fun – The Blood Trials is definitely one to get your hands on!
The sequel to Kitra is another fun, small-scale space adventure that’s perfect for a lighter sci-fi read!
There have been some amazing new picture book releases – here are some I’ve really enjoyed! All of these were sent to me free of charge, but as ever that doesn’t affect my opinions.Continue reading “Kitten Corner: Great New Picture Books”
This gothic, witchy YA would make a perfect autumnal read!
Another great collection of Weird supernatural tales from Handheld Press – this time all focused on archaeology!
This mystery, set in Devon in the 1930s, is a small-scale but very tight and twisty thriller that is perfect for a Sunday afternoon read!
